Salim Nourallah


Listen to Never Felt Better

If a Beatle was left in the desert at age 3 and raised in El Paso - you might have Salim Nourallah...Nourallah is a North Texas music scene fixture. After gaining initial acclaim with the Denton-based Nourallah Brothers he has gone on to release several solo albums and produce an impressive list of many others (including the Old 97s, Rhett Miller, Deathray Davies, Carter Albrecht & Smile Smile). His solo debut, Polaroid (2004), was met with reviews like this one: "discovering a singer-songwriter who can stop time is rare, but Salim Nourallah is such a find..." (Rolling Stone). Beautiful Noise followed in 2006 to more critical acclaim and he swept the Dallas Observer music awards with Best Album/Best Song and Best Producer. Salim has since gone on to win 6 consecutive Observer Awards for Best Producer. His 5th solo cd, Hit Parade, is slated for release in April 2012 by the German indie label, Tapete Records. Another European tour will coincide in July...
